This 200m2 apartment, situated in Urca, is owned and designed by a local artist, and is tastefully decorated in a fun style, while being a very practical and comfortable living space. The apartment is very open and offers outstanding views over Rio.
Urca is a very safe but cool traditional neighbourhood, with mostly residential buildings surrounding you - and a main Rio shopping mall just minutes away. The apartment has 24 hour security guards who screen people coming in and out, and is located in one of Rio's most family oriented neighborhoods. It is just a 10 minute walk to the foot of the Sugarloaf mountain, and the beautiful Praia Vermelha (the Red Beach) - a small beach at the foot of Sugarloaf. It is only 5 minutes by taxi or bus to Copacabana and 12 minutes to Ipanema. There are small local bars & juice bars, a small supermarket and several restaurants within a 3 minute walk.
The main dining/sitting room area opens out directly onto the massive balcony, which, with its 270 degrees view - spanning from Christ Redeemer to Sugarloaf mountain - is arguably one of the best and most unique views in Rio from a private apartment. There is a full kitchen, living room with comfy seats and flatscreen TV with cable with international channels, as well as the dining area that looks out to the 270degree view. The bedroom is air conditioned, and looks out to the view of Christ Redeemer. There are two bathrooms with showers and hot water, as well as a bar, and Wi-Fii internet.
